Our tiler asked us if we wanted pre-cut baseboards or, alternatively, would prefer to order some more tiles and then the tiler would cut the baseboards himself.
We sat there perplexed and didn't know what to do, especially since there was no sample. The tile is a 20x120 wood-look tile. The advantage of prefinished baseboards: rounded edges with the look of wood. Disadvantage: somewhat more expensive
With trimmed skirting boards, only the edge of the tile would be visible, but it is barely noticeable (similar color tone).
What do you think? Can we do without the rounded edges?
The tiles are cut in half, then the cut edge is laid on the floor, so the edges on the tiles won't be sharp.
Our tiler will be cutting the baseboard out of the tile. We also have cut baseboards in our current apartment, and I've noticed more dust accumulating there, but it will be exactly the same with the rounded ones, just a little less dust.
I'd have the tiler cut it flush and plaster it. Of course, you can't do that with drywall, and the trimmer would have to come in twice.
I would go for the rounded version, it costs a little more, but it's worth it. The cutting edge of the tile cutter is very, very sharp and, depending on the tiles, can sometimes wear out a bit.
Use pre-made baseboards. The extra cost is not as much, and there is less hassle.
